"I arrived at L’Acanto after having studied Italian for about two years on my own, and although I had a reasonable grasp of the main body of basic Italian grammar and was able read most texts reasonably comfortably, my ability to speak Italian lagged far behind. The school's director was able to come up with a program that addressed this deficiency, combining many hours of intensive conversation practice with a fascinating insight into the life and culture of this little known part of Italy.
Mesagne is a charming, unaffected town with a lovely historic centre (where the school is situated) and none of the preciousness one encounters in the more famous tourist destinations. And the range of fascinating places to visit in the region is endless."
